Common Name:MCT3
HGNC Symbol:SLC16A8
HGNC Description:solute carrier family 16 (monocarboxylate transporter), member 8
HGNC ID:16270
Chromosome:Chr.22(-): 38474144-38479170 GRCh37
OMIM Phenotype:None
Nucleotide RefSeq:NM_013356
Protein RefSeq:NP_037488
Evidence:Substrate In Vitro Evidence: The human MCT3 transporter has not been studied in heterologous expression systems. Chick MCT3 was shown to transport lactate using a yeast expression system (Grollman EF, Philp NJ, McPhie P, Ward RD, Sauer B. Determination of transport kinetics of chick MCT3 monocarboxylate transporter from retinal pigment epithelium by expression in genetically modified yeast. Biochemistry 39:9351-9357, 2000). . Tissue Distribution Evidence: Tissue distribution of SLC16A8 has not been studied in humans. In mouse, MCT3 expression is restricted to retinal pigment and choroid plexus epithelia as determined by Northern blot (Philp NJ, Yoon H, Lombardi L. Mouse MCT3 gene is expressed preferentially in retinal pigment and choroid plexus epithelia. Am J Physiol Cell Physiol 280(5):C1319-26, 2001).
Tissues:Mice: retinal pigment and choroid plexus epithelia

GTEx Expression by Gene and Transcript

The heat map summarizes relative expression by tissue type at two levels of tissue detail, e.g., 'Brain' and 'Brain - Amygdala'. Choose among four calculated expression values, including mean and median RPKM values, and quantile normalized (QN) distributions of these values. (Note that differences between some distributions are subtle.) The coloring is relative to the mean of all displayed values. All values are log base 2. (See also PMT GTEx Expression Plotting.)
